Shout out to Adam Fawer

A listener of NPR’s Talk of the Nation was unable to catch its summer reading program in its entirety due to a thunderstorm, but felt compelled to write in and add Adam Fawer’s book Improbable to the list:
“For a first novel, this is probably one of the most exciting adventure novels I read in years. It ranges from understandable discussion of probability theory and quantum physics to a fast-paced spy novel that resolves to a spiritual affirmation.”

The Russian rights to Improbable were recently sold to AST Publishers of Moscow, one of the two largest publishers in Russia.
